  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5.

    The Average Rating of 4.546 for Chasedale Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.546

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 3.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chasedale Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered beds ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.250

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My father, having resided at Chasedale for over five years, was bravely losing his battle with his vascular dementia and health problems. It was 7 days after the doctor though my father would pass away. Please note the managers, the nurses and the wonderful care staff afforded my father with total respect and great concern for his comfort right to the last. I feel this care home should be given the recognition it so well deserves. All the staff go that extra mile. Thank you.

The care of our Mum received in the Lindisfarne Wing was exceptional. She was always cared for lovingly. She felt at home here and her needs were met at all times which was very re-assuring to us as a family. We couldn't single out individual members of staff as the whole team, including kitchen and laundry staff, contributed to high-quality care in a humble environment.

My sister was in Chasedale Nursing Home for 2 and a half years before she died. She received excellent care, was always clean and comfortable, and apart from the care she received, the staff were very loving and caring towards her. She loved them all, and died peacefully in the home, with the girls caring for her. I can't praise the staff at Chasedale enough, nothing was ever a trouble for them, and I for one am very grateful for the love and care my sister received, and their kindness to me.

Mum has been at Chasedale for a relatively short time and isn't in a position to use all the facilities. The staff are the thing that makes a care home a home and our family have been very impressed with their friendly, personalised approach.

When my relative moved in 9 months ago I thought the home was rather basic and austere but the excellence of the staff and care has resulted in a great improvement to his physical health and wellbeing. I'm really impressed and grateful for the dedication of the staff dealing with many challenging cases. I now realise that the hard floors and safety measures which was initially off putting to myself are so valuable to the standard of care and beneficial to the dignity of residents.

This is a thank you for all the care given to my husband. My dear late husband had Alzheimer's dementia and had been an inpatient in a centre then a week in another care home where it was felt he would be better in Chasedale care home. We appreciated all the places he was in where we had tremendous help and support for which I and our family and friends much appreciated. My husband settled well in Chasedale and all were so helpful and kind to him and to me and my family and friends. We had been looking forward to him finding a place we could be together more. Sadly it wasn't to be, he was taken to Wansbeck Hospital with severe chest pains he had bilateral pulmonary emboli. He was a week in Wansbeck where he again had wonderful care also from carers from Chasedale. He died on 30th April we are so grateful for kindness and care shown.
